New journal on advanced glass research to debut
Date:5/28/2009

WESTERVILLE, OH The American Ceramic Society (ACerS) announced today that it is launching of a major new, peer-reviewed scientific journal dedicated to glass research: The International Journal of Applied Glass Science (IJAGS).

New generations of glass and glass-related materials are increasingly being called upon to play a role in many of the world's emerging technologies, including energy, medical, transportation, construction, environmental, optical and defense technologies spheres. From cutting-edge photovoltaic power generation systems to nanosized substrates for repairing or even growing new human tissue, glass-based materials are playing an expanding role in the world's scientific and technical advances. "IJAGS will be an important addition to ACerS offerings," said ACerS President John Kaniuk. "We see this as an indispensable source of information on the application of glass science and engineering across the entire materials spectrum, encompassing the description, application, modeling, experimental investigation and manufacture of glass materials."

Dr. L. David Pye, dean and professor of glass science, emeritus, at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University has agreed to serve as the founding editor of the new journal. Pye will be aided by an international advisory board that includes luminaries in the field such as Mario Affatigato (Coe College), Richard Brow (Missouri University of Science and Technology), Manoj Choudhary (Owens Corning), Alexis Clare (Alfred University), William Fahrenholtz (MS&T), Hua-Tay Lin (Oak Ridge National Laboratory, David Morse (Corning Inc.) Alexander Marker (Schott USA), Kathleen Richardson (Clemson University), Emilio Spinosa (Owens Illinois) and George Wicks (Savannah River National Laboratory).

Pye said he is honored to serve as the founding editor. "IJAGS will advance all of the branches of materials science and engineering, and it will support the growing role of glass applications throughout society," said Pye.

Pye said the journal would be published quarterly, with the first issue being released in March 2010.

The production of IJAGS will be done in partnership with leading science publisher Wiley-Blackwell. ACerS and Wiley-Blackwell already have a strong publishing track record and jointly produce two other peer-reviewed journals: The Journal of the American Ceramic Society and the International Journal of Applied Ceramic Technology. These journals are among the most cited ceramic publications in the world.

"I am delighted that ACerS has given Wiley-Blackwell the opportunity to extend our partnership by publishing this new journal together," said Jon Walsmley, vice president and managing director, professional publications, of Wiley-Blackwell. "This is a hot subject-area with significant potential. It is typical of ACerS to be looking to build for the future and it is a privilege to be a part of ACerS exciting vision."
